Face-to-Face and Telephone fundraising are the most direct way to help us fight for childhood.

SickKids Foundation raises vital funds for The Hospital for Sick Children in many ways. But reaching donors in their communities, through a respectful face-to-face or telephone interaction, is our most immediate approach for enlisting donors in the fight for kids health.


Our Door-to-Door program was designed in 1999 to gain support from our community. Our fundraisers seek out donors who are committed to making long-term monthly donations to help us continue the fight against the greatest challenges in child health.


In 2004, we began face-to-face fundraising in shopping malls across Ontario and other venues like local markets, events, and Billy Bishop Airport. Our fundraisers are trained to engage and inform shoppers and the public in these busy environments about the ways they can support the Hospital.


Our Telemarketing program reaches out to our existing donors in a respectful, meaningful way. We work with our trusted telephone fundraising partner to help us build strong connections with our donors. Our telephone fundraisers are trained to speak on our behalf of SickKids Foundation and share the impact of donor support on children’s health. They are instrumental in keeping much needed funds flowing to the Hospital to save lives, find new cures and provide world-class care.
